About Us

We’re Meteoor. Pleased to meet you.

Meteoor, founded in 2014, is a small publishing house
focusing on crafts books for the international market.


It all started with a website stuffed with amigurumi (編みぐるみ; crocheted stuffed toys). We were fascinated by the 3D crochetwork, tried some out and along the way we built a community around this specific craft. Today the website has more than 80.000 unique visitors a month and more than 160.000 Facebook fans.


As we were already collecting the cutest amigurumi patterns from around the world and had a highly interested audience, we decided to publish a first English paperback with the patterns we loved most. One book was quickly followed by a second and a third… a translation in Dutch, South-Korean and German and a brand growing at great pace.


Today Meteoor distributes a series of books that is much loved by crafters from all over the world. With our websites, and, we aim to reach new crafts communities. Titles on these topics will be added to our portfolio in the upcoming year.
